FROM UPPER VALLEY
Kditor Hood River News:
Dear Sir: I write In haste and In
great anxiety regarding a matter
which concerns me greatly. It per
tains to a very perslsteut rumor
which has leen repeatedly heard In
these parts, that the Lower Valley Is
about to be discontim'KD A HOL
ISM FI. And this on the ground
that it is In the way In getting to
and from the I'pper Valley. You
would confer a very great personal
favor to the writer If you would ad
vise if this rumor has foundation In
fact, and. If It has, to use your best
efforts to preclude any such unfortu
nate consummation. For though I
appreciate that the accomplishment
of such a plan would very greatly In
crease our convenience In getting to
and from Hood Klver, however, I
am sure that we would all more
than willingly sacrifice any such con
venience on consideration of the evil
which such a drastic measure would
work to many good friends In the
I trust that I may le favored with
an early aud a reassuring reply.
Very truly yours,
HOMKII A. KoOfcltrt.
We do not think yoi: ned enter
tain nny fears of the vanishment of
the Lower Valley. While your letter
Is somewhat ambiguous, we judge
that you refer, In the matter of In
convenience, to the bad roads. We
would suggest, therefore, that vou
procure an nreoplane. as you should
have no difficulty In getting a irood
start atid plenty of momentum, from
your lofty place of residt nee, to cross
the Lower Valley. Kiiitok
